Organ
Much to enjoy in these short character pieces Review by Stephen Farr
Star Rating
The post-beginner stages of learning the organ can often seem a bit of a wilderness as far as entertaining and engaging repertoire goes. Once past the excitement of left hand and pedal together, both students and teachers can find the staple fare of the Grade 5-6 organ repertoire worthy but dull, a sort of musical lowland before the heights of noisy French toccatas and flashy pedal solos. The Microjazz series has long been a hugely popular resource for pianists (who, in any case, have a lot more worthwhile repertoire to choose from at all levels of attainment). Now organists have something comparable in Just Jazz, two volumes of music by Heather Hammond which have been neatly arranged for organ by Richard Lloyd. It may be optimistic to claim, as the blurb does, that these pieces are suitable for liturgical use, but students around Grade 5 standard who are developing a good rhythmic sense and already have some degree of left hand and pedal independence will find much to enjoy in these short character pieces. Moods are varied and the works are imaginatively titled, but there is a possible danger that the familiar nature of the jazz tropes could wear a bit thin if consumed in large doses – too much swing can be exhausting. Best consumed as an occasional treat rather than a staple, perhaps. All the pieces can be played on modest two-manual instruments, the demands of organ management are not all that testing, and registration indications are sane and sensible. (Posted on 10/09/2012)
